  • Legatus (Lieutenant)? 94 Hispania (Broughton MRR III) Expand
    • Leg., lieut. ? See MRR 2.14, 16, note 2. As the sources give him no title, and as the proconsuls Didius and Crassus in Spain in 94, the year of the notice about him in Obsequens 51, are known, Sumner suggests that he was a legatus (Orators 74). (Broughton MRR III)
  • Praetor? 93 Hispania (Broughton MRR II) Expand
    • 2 Nasica's title is not preserved, nor is the date absolutely certain. Wilsdorf (Leipzig. Stud. 1.112),places the Consul Flaccus in Nearer Spain against the Celtiberi, and Nasica therefore in Farther Spain (see 92, Promagistrates, on Flaccus). A date in 93 is perhaps more probable than the 94 favored by the order of the passage in Obsequens, since the two incumbent governors in Spain, Didius and Crassus, did not celebrate their triumphs until June 10 and 12, respectively, of 93 (see Promagistrates). Nasica's praetorship is not.mentioned, though his eminence and connections (Cic. Brut. 2 11; De Or. 3.134; Rose. Amer. 77; Dio 40.51.3) as well as his command make it probable that he held it. It is not clear whether he went to Spain in the year of his praetorship. (Broughton MRR II)
    • Crushed the leaders of a revolt in Spain and destroyed their towns (Obseq. 51). (Broughton MRR II)
